In Tradition Kept, Samaritan experts Robert T. Anderson and Terry Giles have created an accessible introduction to the sacred literature of the Samaritans. This new volume serves as an effective companion to the authors' earlier history of the Samaritans, The Keepers, which sheds light on a people virtually unknown apart from the parable of the Good Samaritan.
Anderson and Giles offer fresh translations of the most important and least available portions of Samaritan literature, including major historical works, liturgies, theological compositions, and even samplings of astronomical and amulet texts. These are indispensable texts for those seeking to understand these contemporaries of Ezra and Nehemiah, Jesus, and early Jewish rabbis. Students and scholars will particularly benefit from the illustrations and bibliography that provides profitable information and direction for further research into the corpus of Samaritan sacred texts.
